Obviously, there have been sightings, and this story REALLY did happen. Though throughout the years it has been altered a bit. I grew up in Oak Forest and that was a local haunting that many of my crazy family members went to check out along with Bachelor’s Grove–another very haunted place–, but I will agree to the bending of the bars being replaced and it reoccuring. This story of a woman named Mary and the ball room incident and all the asking for rides from MEN have occured. There have been books, newspaper articles, and even follow ups done by the famous Seymor Simon. I believe. Even though I have never seen anything personally, it does not mean it does not exist.

Mary was killed in a car crash on her way home from a night out dancing. Her body does lay in Resurrection Cemetery on 79th (aka Archer Ave.)Men have picked her up and taken for a night of dancing, in which they have noticed that she is chilled to the bone, upon passing the Cemetery she vanishes. Be nice there are Chicagoians out there that know the Story …..

Not saying anyone is wrong, but as a Chicago Native the storys goes she left the ball early because she was under the impression that her boyfriend had been flirting with another woman all night, so she got mad and left the party to walk home, during her journey she was being harrased by some other guys that saw her walking, asking her if she wanted a ride one jumps out of the car and starts fondling her dress throwingit up over her and such, she starting running fell and busted her head wide open on a big pice or cement, she laid for hours until finally one of the party goers noticed the bundle on the ground police where called and that that. How do i know. My granddad was born 1891 and he attended the party, well I call him granddad but he is my grandmothers father. He passed on a couple years ago, but my grandad told us about a lot of of old stories you now hear about, but I was smart I taped recorded most of our conversations.

It was a dark at the time i drove into the area after traveling for about 6 hours in 1979. I had felt I was lost and was thinking where i might have turned wrong. I like having the top down even with the cold night air, of course my heater and radio were on. I saw something out of the corner of my eye, startled i see a woman sitting on the passenger side of my old Delta 98. It scared me but she looked friendly enough dressed nicely like a girl would for a high school dance. I quickly thought back as to when i was going slow enough for her to jump in. It was very dark and i could feel the cold coming off of her. I asked her how she got into the car. She spoke, “Could you give me a ride home”. I blew off the fact she jumped into the car, easy for a laid back 17 year old with a nice looking girl. We started off down the road I turned the heat up more and gave her my jean jacket because you could really feel the cold come off her like it does when someone walks into the house after being out in the freezing winter Iowa night.She gave me directions to her parents home. We made some small talk. I remember warning her about hitchhiking and jumping into cars which she replied that I was nice enough and asked if i had a girlfriend. I dont remember all the small talk we had. It seemed a short amount of time had passed when I looked over and she was gone.

all you peop0le need to check your stories before you write comments, and before any of you start your b.s. I am a certified paranormal investigator, resurection mary was killed while walking down archer ave from the willow brook dance hall, she was killed while walking down archer and now she hitchikes on archer ave. when she gets into your car she gives you an adress and while heading down archer twards the adress she takes off out of the car and runs twards the cemetary gates. so please double check you facts when your going to post something and try to make someone else feel stupid, because you just make an *** of yourself

jesika^^^ is right, we picked her up on the side of archer ave as she was hitch hiking , she gave an adress so we put it in the gps to take her there, we looked in the back seat to find mary still there and she had vanished and to the side the cemetary stood with ent gates.

I remember this story from when I was in 4th grade, and it’s a dance, not a ceremony. She was killed and thrown in a ditch, and every year she hitches a ride “home” and disappears at the cemetery gates. I have been told you can find her walking during and only during a full moon on Halloween, and
others have said every halloween. I have gone for years and haven’t seen nothing!!! I went to Monks cemetery and we saw a cloud of fog, where there should not have been any.

I can’t believe there is no mention of Bachelors Grove Cemetery in Midlothian Illinois on this site.
